Cardinal O' Malley will be present for the Mass in choir.

St. Mary's is located in Chinatown at 727 5th Street NW, Washington, DC.

Friends may call at the church to pay their respects on Thursday August 23, from 6:00 to 9:00pm.

There will be a Vigil Service at 7:30pm on Thursday, presided over by Fr. Alfred Harris, Nellie's pastor, followed by a eulogy delivered by Pastor Luke Robinson of the Quinn Chapel AME Church in Frederick, Maryland.

Pastor Robinson is a long-standing supporter of the March for Life and a devoted friend to Nellie. There will also be a visitation period on Friday morning from 10:00-11:00am, just prior to the funeral mass.

In lieu of flowers, the Board of Directors suggests offering a memorial to the Nellie Gray Legacy Fund. We have also opened the link to our Annual Report Messages page for those who would like to remember Nellie in a written tribute.

The Board of Directors, alongside Nellie's many friends in the pro-life community, are in the process of planning a special memorial service in Nellie's honor at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.
